Do you think we will never know why she used the name "Watson" all the years I knew her?

She was a secretive woman and I once asked her the name of Paul's father. She said, "Romeo." Perhaps she didn't intend that to be taken literally.

Why Paul's birth certificate has his mother's maiden name as his birth name is another question.
